Legacy Film Show: Nairobi Half Life

Legacy Film provides positive representation in film for those of the African and Caribbean diaspora and screens films and events to entertain, excite and interest all.  Following a very successful showing of Medicine for Melancholy at Redroaster in June, there will be a showing in July of David Tosh Gitonga's Nairobi Half Life (Kenya 2012).

A young aspiring actor from upcountry Kenya dreams of becoming an accomplished actor. In pursuit of this, and to the chagrin of his family, he makes his way to Nairobi, the city of opportunity. He soon understands why it is nicknamed Nairrobery, being robbed of all his belongings and left alone in a city where he doesn't know a soul. Chance brings him face to face with the city's criminals, forming a friendship with a small-time crook. He is quickly drawn into a world of crime as he struggles to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. Keeping the two worlds separate proves to be a challenge as he trudges on in this unknown world called Nairobi.

Solo show by Richard Denne

Richard Denne is a Brighton based artist. An avid fan of Pop Art, he uses this as a starting block to explore the idea of collage, resulting in bold and graphic work. He integrates a traditional print-making process with digital technology and fuses them into prints and mixed media originals. Richard will be donating all profits from his Solo Show to the 'Rainbow Fund' Brighton.

Denne grew up near Portsmouth and moved to London in 1984 to study music. It was there, on the edge of Soho, that he discovered a sub-culture of sexuality and life seemed to begin. 15 years later, tiring of London and the clubbing scene he moved to Brighton and found time and space to rediscover his interest in the Arts.

In 2004 he completed his Masters Degree in Fine Art/Printmaking and currently works from his Brighton studio. To contact the artist please visit Denne's website
